In 1988, Discover Houston Tours introduced daily guided walking tours and the Tunnel System to Houston. In 2011, we partnered with Urban Adventures to offer two walking tours through our sister company, Houston Urban Adventures. To date, our combined companies have conducted over 4,800 tours for more than 57,000 visitors from around the world.
